What is an E-Bike?

Nevada defines an e-bike as a bicycle with an electric motor that helps propel the rider when activated. Nevada electric bike laws categorizes e-bikes into three classes based on their motor’s capabilities:

  • Class 1 Electric Bike: Pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph.
  • Class 2 Electric Bike: Can be propelled solely by the motor, not requiring pedaling, with a maximum speed of 20 mph.
  • Class 3 Electric Bike: Pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and a maximum assisted speed of 28 mph.

How Do E-Bike Accidents Happen?

Like any other motor vehicle accident, e-bike accidents happen due to negligence. Whose negligence contributed to or caused your accident is a question that our attorneys are prepared to answer by thoroughly gathering information and evidence and working around-the-clock work on your case. We know where to look for compelling evidence and how to build strong arguments that can be taken into settlement negotiation meetings or before the court.  If you didn’t cause the accident, our goals include proving liability against the defendant, ensuring you get the best medical care, reducing time off work, and maximizing your physical, mental and financial recovery. 

E-bike accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Distracted driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Speeding
  • Defective e-bike design
  • Pedestrians entering the bike lane without checking

In some cases, a defendant in an e-bike accident claim might be the e-bike manufacturer or a company that rents e-bikes through an app. For example, if an e-bike rental company does not maintain its e-bikes and fix defects in a timely manner, a rider could be injured due to a sudden part failure like a brake system failure. If that happens, the company should be held liable for the damage that follows. Our firm is prepared to bring an e-bike claim on your behalf against any liable party, including motorists, e-bike manufacturers, e-bike rental apps, and more.

Injuries Suffered in E-Bike Accidents

An e-bike accident can result in serious injuries. Motorists often fail to see e-bikes, similar to dangers a motorcyclist faces. Even if a rider is equipped with a helmet and protective padding, a crash on an e-bike can be disastrous, especially if the rider is traveling at or above 20 mph or is hit by a larger vehicle. If you were hurt in an e-bike accident in Las Vegas, we want to hear from you, so we can see if you can file a claim that pursues compensation in relation to your injuries and losses.

Injuries that are often suffered in e-bike accidents include the following and more:

In the worst case scenario (i.e., the death of a loved one), our legal team can handle wrongful death claims that balance professionalism with genuine compassion for what you are going through as someone who lost a loved one in a tragic collision.
